When I started blogging in 2012, I knew basically no one in the WordPress community, but I wanted to write. So, I like many others, just started to write. I'm not sure how it happened exactly, but one day I started getting lovely, encouraging, and sometimes hilarious comments from my now dear friend Stella. She had a different name, but the same sweet and friendly way.
She's a brilliant poet, and her prose will draw you into the world she has created. Check our her blog here.
Well, she recently reviewed my book, Encounters With Jesus, and I wanted to share her review here, with you all.
So - here goes:
Ben (Benjamin) Nelson, of Another Red Letter Day—a man I may never meet personally, but am proud to call brother—has written and published an anointed book. Encounters With Jesus is beautiful, from cover to lovely cover. Ben takes us through “40 days in the life of Jesus…through the eyes of those He touched”.
I first came across Ben’s blog six years ago and was impressed with his knowledge of the Bible, as well as his clear, concise, and engaging writing style. In his book, he’s written the short “encounters” to reflect a distinctive new shimmer on the Biblical passages from which Ben has drawn them.
Throughout each “encounter”, Ben intersperses a verse or two from The Message Bible which adds to the “you are there” feeling you’ll enjoy as you read. And although Ben suggests you not read the book in one sitting—but rather one story per day—I found it’s really hard to stop, once you open the first page.
I rarely do book reviews—and yes, I’m a little biased, but not over-much. This book will bless you in a way that warms and lights you up inside…and it makes a wonderful gift, too. It’s available on Amazon.com—so treat yourself to something special!
I’m already looking forward to Ben’s next book—that’s how good Encounters With Jesus is.

Here's the link to the review in its original habitat.
Thanks so much Stella! As I have told you before, your encouragement during my earliest days of writing online is a big part of why I decided to put Encounters out there in the first place.
If you've not gotten your hands on a copy of Encounters With Jesus, what are you waiting for? This is a great time to walk through the life of Jesus. March 1st is he beginning of Lent this year, and those 40 days would be well spent taking a fresh look at the life of Jesus.
Get your copy here. It's available in paperback and kindle.
If you want to use it for a Bible Study or discussion group, quantities of 5 or more, email me (Ben@AnotherRedLetterDay.com) and I can get you a price break.
Thank you all for stopping by.
See you again soon,
